This paper presents a heuristic to solve the Multidimensional Multiple-choice Knapsack Problem (MMKP), a variant of the classical 0–1 Knapsack Problem. We apply a transformation technique to map the multidimensional resource consumption to single dimension. Convex hulls are constructed to reduce the search space to find the near-optimal solution of the(More)
